BASECAMP EXPLORER KENYA

The Maasai Mara is globally renowned for its glorious open plains and exceptional wildlife. It is home to the greatest gathering of larger mammals on the planet, including such fantastic species as lions, cheetahs, crocodiles, elephants, and many more.

The Maasai Mara is a perfect holiday destination throughout the year, thanks to its continuous pleasant temperatures and limited rainfall. From late June to October/November the Mara welcomes the Great Migration of wildebeest, zebras and antelopes, an extraordinary wildlife spectacle named as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The Maasai Mara is easy to get to. The Savannah is only a short transfer flight away from Nairobi, an international hub with several international arrivals every day.

Basecamp Masai Mara

Basecamp Masai Mara – fittingly referred to as the ‘mother of all camps’ by our staff – is where our story started. Lovingly run by our Maasai staff – Basecamp Masai Mara is as much a home as it is a tourism destination.

Eagle view

At Eagle View we invite you to gaze towards the future of Sustainable Tourism. Perched atop a natural hilltop, this luxury eco-camp is located within Naboisho Conservancy – a highly acclaimed model for nature conservation management.

Wilderness camp

Wilderness is our nostalgic tribute to the safaris of the early explorers and safari pioneers. Free from artificial luxury and modern disturbances, Wilderness is safari as it was meant to be. It is only you, the Maasai, the wildlife, and the stars.

Dorobo Mobile Camp

Truly the stuff of legends, the Dorobo spend their lives living off the African savannah, carrying no other protection than their intrinsic understanding of the wilderness. Partake in several days of walking and mobile camping on the savannah.
